ASUS Announces P5K3 Premium with 2GB Onboard DDR3

The new P5K3 come with 2GB of the latest DDR3 RAM guaranteed to overclock above DDR3 1600. Quite a claim.

ASUS latest offering is based on Intels P35 chipset which supports a host of processors including Intel Core 2 Quad, Core 2 Extreme, Core 2 Duo, CrossFire and sports solid copper heatpipes for cooling.

The motherboard does not have any spare DIMM slots available to add additional RAM at a later date which begs the question 'How do I upgrade? I need more than 2GB'. Well it seems you can't, although without seeing the board in person I can not confirm this is the case. It is worth noting this is DDR3 RAM, many enthusiasts are upgrading from 2GB of DDR2 RAM, perhaps 2GB of DDR3 is sufficient... For how long?

Im rather fond of the spinpoint in my family PC. Its very, very quiet.

I myself have a few maxtors, not the quietest but (as long as you don't blow them up :rolleyes: ) then they're good and fast.

Heard nice things about the Spinpoint drives, unfortuately cannot comment on them myself as I do not own any. I have 2x Maxtor 320gb sata drives, and I really do not like them. It's the only hard drives I've had that had overheated to the point of making the machine BSOD, they (or at least mine) tend to run very hot and need a fan on them.

Might not be true about newer Maxtor stuff, since Seagate bought them out.

I've been using a Western Digital WD2500KS 250gb (Sata II, 16MB cache, 7200rpm) for about a year and it's pretty decent. Not bad for 42 quid delivered (ST should do you free P&P).

Oh yes! Thanks Allsorts, forgot about the free P+P ST offer to OC3D Members :D
